Disruptive conservatives. "With the Wolfowitz and even the John Bolton nomination to the United Nations, the Bush administration retains its capacity to startle," writes Christopher Hitchens in Slate, "mainly because it has redefined the lazy term 'conservative' to mean someone who is impatient with the status quo."

Hitchens finds the position of Paul Wolfowitz in this contest is rather harder to read than many people suppose. "He has long had a close relationship with centrist democrats in the Philippines, Malaysia, and Indonesia. He prizes his Asian contacts and the relationship with moderate Islam that they symbolize."

However, Hitchens concludes: "For all this, I don't take it for granted that the nomination for leadership of the World Bank is in the gift of the president of the United States".
